The Best Of Friends
Lily Allen and Elton John had a little kitten fight (clip above) at the GQ Awards in London the other night. The fight looks about as real as Elton's hair. Lily still felt the need to defend herself on MySpace. She said she's very good friends with Elton and the media is just raining on her champagne parade. Here's some of the shit she wrote.
Hi , now it's all died down i'm saying my side of what I can't believe is considered to be a story. Elton john and I are friends. I was honoured when Elton asked me to present the GQ awards with him this year in association with Elton's AIDS foundation. Not only was it for a good cause but who would say no to Elton.
I'm not defending my drunkeness because i don't need to, i'm 23 it was an awards ceremony i drank the free champagne, how awful of me. Trying to create a feud on the other hand, and trying to make me out as being some rude little girl with a drink problem is just unfair, Elton and I exchanged jokes and there were no hard feelings at all, infact neither of us gave it a second thought. It's sad that an evening enjoyed by all had to ruined by some bitter journos again.This isn't meant to be a place for me to respond to journalists, but I am very grateful I have this page, if i didn't then i would have absolutely no voice when it comes to this stuff.
All these showbiz journalists are just bullies when it comes down to it. I have felt really very bullied this week.I realise that when i first started this job I slagged a few people off when I probably shouldn't have and I have been opinionated about some things, but i haven't said a bad word about anyone for a long time, even when I have wanted to, even when people have tried to start feuds and said horrible things about me when they'd never even met me, when they'd based an opinion on me because of something they'd read. It's hurtful, but it's fine if you want to print a picture of me and say how awful I look, how much weight i've put on or how terrible my choice of clothes were that day. In my opinion it's still a form of bullying and if anyone spoke to any of my friends like that to their faces i'd want to kill them. But character assasination is another thing it's just not needed.
She ends her post by telling all the photographers outside her house to "fuck off," because she's not coming out anytime soon. That's her hangover typing. Yes, she's 23 and can drink as much as she wants, but the bitch was doing a job. If I showed up wasted to my job every morn ------ bad example. The point is she needs to stop moaning, because she's starting to sound like a bitter, constipated grouch. Basically, she's sounding like me and that's not a compliment.
Lily, have another glass of champagne, but mix it with peach juice this time. That shit will sweeten you up and make you smile.
